SEAC commissioned the talented artist, Richmond Futch, to create two beautiful Playful Sidewalks near Wadsworth Square Park. On Saturday, August 20th, Richmond created beautiful hopscotches with a few Rochester historical landmarks while families of the Wadsworth Square neighborhood and SEAC staff and board members came to hang out and help paint.
We had donuts and coffee and later pizza! It was a great time. Thanks to everyone who participated and made another Rochester sidewalk playful!
Andrea Creary, the Learn2Earn Coordinator at Center for Youth, shared a little bit about Roberto with us. SEAC is happy we could assist Roberto in his journey and wish him nothing but success!
Roberto lives in one of our shelters in the South East area of Rochester. He is low income and a minority. Roberto recently completed an asbestos handling certification and is now attending the ITEC Construction program, while working part-time in an internship at Imprintable Solutions, a locally owned small business.
Roberto is a very driven young man. He has proven reliability and dedication by consistently attending classes, showing up for work and attending meetings with staff at The Center for Youth.
Thank you for the opportunity to nominate this wonderful young man.
SEAC is happy to support the awesome work of Foodlink’s Curbside Market. During the month of June SEAC handed out 100 $5 food vouchers (25 per location) at East Court Apartments, EL Towers, Pinnacle Place, and Manhattan Square. Some of our awesome SOOPers came to help too.
Thank you Foodlink for bring fresh affordable food to our vulnerable communities in Rochester.

September 17th by the Cornell Cooperative Extension Monroe County in an effort to combat food insecurity and food deserts here in the City of Rochester. Called the 1st Annual Urban Gardens Day, this is an educational and inspirational event targeting those who have not yet, but would like to benefit from having their own food garden.
SEAC is thrilled to relaunch the ROCing the Takeout initiative with the hope it will bring support and awareness to all the awesome locally-owned eateries in the South East Quadrant and thank those who support them.
